WTI made a commitment to Brocade when the company was still unproven; their capital had a meaningful impact on growing the business.
Former CEO, Brocade Communications (NASDAQ: BRCD)
WTI provides a broad range of minimally dilutive, non-restrictive debt financing solutions in amounts ranging from $250K to $30M. In selected cases, we are able to provide equity capital in conjunction with debt financing.
While our range of investments is broad, they all share the following common characteristics:
(i) Technology or life science products
(ii) High gross margins
(iii) In the case of companies which are pre-revenue or early in revenue, backed by domain relevant angel investors and/or credible institutional equity investors
(iv) In the case of companies generating $5M+ of revenue, we are often comfortable investing in companies which haven't taken instituional equity capital
(iv) In the case of companies in revenue, strong proven growth with an expanding customer base
Unrestricted capital for revenue generating companies to fund general operations, maintain a cash "cushion" and extend "runway" prior to your next equity financing
Unrestricted capital for pre-revenue/early revenue stage companies to fund general operations while minimizing potentially significant dilution
Hybrid financing which allows you to take advantage of the lower cost of debt capital while maximizing available cash
Highly scalable capital availability mapped to your revenue driven working capital needs
Capital to fund tuck-in acquisitions of teams, IP or revenue generating companies
Capital to cost effectively fund specific hard or soft asset purchases
